LEAKING AIR DUCTS ARE THE #1 CAUSE OF HOME ENERGY WASTE
Did you know that just one small hole or leak in the ductwork could cause major problems for your entire home? Here are some of the top issues leaky air ducts are responsible for:
Are one or two rooms warmer than the rest of the rooms in the house? Is your main level nice and warm but your upstairs an icebox? Inefficient and leaky air ducts are the number one reason for temperate imbalance in your home or business. If your ducts have holes, some of the heated or cooled air doesn’t make it to all of the rooms because it travels through and OUT of your ductwork.
You end up driving up your energy bills and wasting money as you constantly try to compensate for the hot and cold spots caused by air leakage.
AIR QUALITY PROBLEMS
Does it seem as if your house accumulates lots of dust very quickly? Is anyone in your home suffering from allergies? Faulty duct systems are known to not only increase the amount of dust in the home, but they also clog air filters and blow out the dirt and debris that get sucked up through the holes back into your home.
Leaky ducts can transport pollutants throughout your home, causing air quality problems.
WASTE OF MONEY
Because you are losing heated and cooled air through leaks in your ductwork, it takes longer to get your house to your desired temperature. But the longer your air-conditioning or heating system runs, the higher your utility bills become.
When it’s all said and done, leaking ducts = loss of energy. More importantly, you are losing money as you try to compensate for the inefficiencies of your heating and cooling systems caused by air leakage!
